Snowflake icon“Thank you!” to all the volunteers who helped Christmas House provide Snohomish County parents with free Christmas gifts for their children in 2023.

Christmas House is a 100% volunteer organization. We need hundreds of volunteers to help us make Christmas House a success each year. Without enough volunteers, we will not be able to open. A gift of your time is valuable in making Christmas House happen each year. We invite you to join us!

The majority of volunteers help from Thanksgiving weekend through Christmas weekend while the “store” is being set up, open to shoppers and being packed up. In November/December volunteers help us move boxes and merchandise, set up the store, assist shoppers as they select gifts, provide translation assistance, input data into computers, stock tables and racks, bag up selections and help shoppers to their vehicles.
